I just finished installing Windows on my new HTPC with this board. (see here). This is my first UEFI board and first SSD so I'm not too familiar with them. I did have some trouble installing because during installation where you select the unallocated drive there was a message saying Windows cannot be installed to this disk . Anyone know why it said that? Anyways I just clicked Next and in started the install process. But after I rebooted into the BIOS I have these UEFI labels in the corner. Why are they there? The first says Windows boot manager > then my optical drive with the UEFI label > then my SSD > then my optical drive again.
Before I started the install I only had the SSD and optical drives shown without the UEFI labels. When I eject the optical disk and reboot into the BIOS all that is left is Windows boot manager > my SSD > my optical drive. Is it normal to see the Windows boot manager before the SSD?

I know this is really old, but I've figured out the biggest problem with this board could be just this. When you FIRST start to install Windows, after you put the Windows disk in the DVD tray. Go back into your bios and you will notice, that the first bootable device will be your DVD drive with the UEFI label, then your HDD, then another disk drive with no label. If you install Windows onto the UEFI drive, your setting your system up for a GPT (GUID Partition Table) not a MBR (Master Boot Record) that your accustomed to. The major differance, between the two, is you can use 2.2TB+ drives with GPT setups. There are some drawbacks to GPT, so if you don't need it, your better off using a MBR setup. To do this, you simply move the "non UEFI" disk drive as the first bootable drive in your bios, BEFORE you start to install Windows. It will now read the Windows DVD off of your MBR drive and set your system up as a MBR setup. You won't get the error message "Windows cannot be installed to this disk".
You shouldn't have a problem with the system either way, but I did read that creating a disk image with a GPT system is a problem. After I figured out what I had done when I installed Windows the first time, I reinstalled it as a MBR system, and it might be my imagination, but the system seems to run better. I thought there was a pause now and then when loading Windows as a GPT system.
For more info on this read "The Installation of Windows 7" from Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs.

No problem there. I'm guessing this is not new SSD. Meaning you already use that SSD with previous system. If yes, your SSD have MBR partition table. You just need to re-partition your SSD (by deleting all partitions & create new one). With this board, by default windows installer DVD will boot in UEFI mode & HDD must use GPT partition table.

Yes, it's normal. Windows Boot Manager usually the first option. Without Windows Boot Manager you will not be able to boot into windows.

Good point.
I did secure erase my SSD before the install.
Then I aligned and partitioned it as MBR. That's why I had issues when I loaded windows using the UEFI drive.
If I had just secure erased the SSD and loaded the GPT Windows onto it, I wouldn't have had any issues.
Now taht I read through the benenfits of a GPT setup, I wish I had used it. Maybe on the next install.

One more tip for this board.
Mine kept waking from sleep mode.
It was the Intel Gigabit Network Controller.
I had to disable "Wake on Pattern Match" and it took care of it.

This is a brand new SSD. But as you said it looks like Windows created a GPT partition because I remember there were 3 partitions visible before I decided to re-install Windows. I just deleted them and started over. This time I didn't see the Windows cannot be installed to this disk warning message near the bottom. Now everything seem to be running OK.
So why does Windows need to use the GPT partition table by default when installing? How would I make it use MBR from the start?

When you first put the Windows install DVD into the drive, go back into the bios. You'll see the first boot device will be a UEFI DVD drive. Just switch the first boot device to the NON-UEFI DVD drive. Now your booting off of the MBR drive and it will setup Windows accordingly. It doesn't state this anywhere, I just figured it out with much trial and error.

Because by default this board will boot Windows DVD installer in UEFI mode & when booting in UEFI mode, Windows can only setup UEFI boot. GPT partition table is requirement for UEFI boot. To use MBR you'll need to enter BIOS & boot DVD by selecting DVD icon without UEFI label. There is a hotkey but I don't remember whether it is F12 or another.
